hmm. last thing i can think of, because i saw it in this thread somewhere, download the XAA firmware instead of SPR and see what that does for you. If that fails im willing to bet samsung has been watching us and has broke the odin flash method on newer firmwares.
EDIT: i tried the method below, and i got an error "data after the paylod" when using 7zip to extract, using the latest 7zip. So i dont know if this will actually even work at all.
if that fails, i did a quick google and this is the only thing that seems like it could make a difference.
the directions are a little spotty. but basically, using .7zip...
(for each file, AP, BL, CP,CSC, do the folowing)
1. remove .md5 from filename
2. use 7zip to unzip each archive into its own folder
3. open this new folder, and extract any .lz4 file into this folder.
4. delete all .lz4 files
5.select all files in the folder, right click
6. select 7zip "add to archive"
7.set the archive to format as .tar
8. flash with odin?
Well for weeks trying to get odin working, I finally solved my issue. I left out on my previous posts that I had gotten a new desktop. My old desktop was a 10 year old AMD CPU Phenom. After searching for weeks I came across a thread from a motherboards website about USB devices not working correctly and the solution was to install a driver from the USB manufacturer. That gave me a thought because my old motherboard had old USB hardware / drivers and my new motherboard had newer USB hardware. When I open device manager / USB tree, I noticed I have 2 USB controllers: AMD USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller and ASMedia USB 3.1 Xtensible Host Controller. Both had a 2019 drivers installed from Microsoft. I searched my motherboards website for Manufacturer USB drivers but there weren't any. Couldn't find a AMD driver and the AMD chipset driver utilities didn't have a Driver for it either. Another thread I saw was a suggestion to install a driver installer program. After installing one, it scanned my hardware and gave me a option to install a Manufacturer USB driver for ASMedia. The driver is 2 years older but its from ASMedia. I installed that Driver and Windows detected a new Hardware. I went ahead and tried Odin and this time it worked . So it looks like the USB drivers for your USB hardware need to come from the Manufacturer and not Microsoft.
